I am a web programmer by day (PHP) and work on sermons and teaching material in the evenings.

I attended Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri, for a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity. I am an associate pastor at a small church in Iowa. While in seminary, my emphasis was on Old Testament studies, but Dr. Wave Nunnally introduced me to the rabbinics. Those have become a special interest as well.

I also enjoy apologetics and was a very active member of the apologetics.org forum before it went defunct.

comment How credible is the theory that Enki and Ninhursag influenced Genesis 2 and 3?
"you will find that the differences stand out much more than the similarities". This is so important. For example, in so many of the other Flood stories, the gods send the flood not because humanity is sinful, but because humanity is noisy and keeping the gods from their [beauty] sleep! The gods also forgot that they need humans to make sacrifices (feeding the gods). The gods are, in these, little more than people with super egos, super powers, and short tempers. The stories make people feel good about themselves while the Bible shows the majesty of God and the sinfulness of humanity.

comment How can Paul (Saul), be considered a “young man” when Stephen was stoned?
I first read "R.J. Knowling" as "J.K. Rowling," and thought "What?" I think I need caffeine.

comment Was the text of Matthew 28:19 changed?
@davidbrainerd, for plausible deniability to work, you'd want to change more than one reference. Instead, this "conspiracy" changes 1 and leaves 6. That's backwards.
